The course at Whiskey Creek Golf Club was The Big Easy's first foray into the world of design. It was here that Ernie Els collaborated with architect J. Michael Poellet of JMP Design to lay out a stellar set of strategic golf holes.
Situated a short 20-minute drive from Frederick, the course occupies a varied property of ponds, wetland areas, rocky outcrops, meadows and pine forest – and at the par five 18th, there’s an old derelict farmhouse in the middle of the fairway to be negotiated before playing an approach shot over water to the home green.
“Whiskey Creek is a course where you have the opportunity to play a full range of golf shots and really think about your strategy for playing each hole,” said Ernie Els. “It's a course that offers that traditional feel to the public golfer, not just a course where you bang the ball around.”

Ernie Els grew up on the outskirts of Johannesburg, where he excelled at cricket, rugby and tennis. His prowess at tennis was such that he won the Eastern Transvaal Junior Championships aged thirteen.
